Yes I wear hearing protection now, Howard Leights and Sure Fire Sonic Defenders.

I too was bothered by the doctor telling me about the coffee - I cut back and sure enough, so it comes and goes. As I have gotten older I use half a cup of coffee and fill it up with hot water, that helps, but I beat my ears up for too long.
Nothing like those electronic muffs though. I was amazed at how much I like them. I have the Peltor muffs and was really surprised at how effective they are at blocking the sound when the electronics are shut down. I use my Leights for locations where I may be exposed when taken by surprise. I like the way they compress down to such a small size. I have a bag I made to keep them handy and not get prematurely worn.
Again I encourage any one who reads this and shoots to get your hands on some if the products mentioned here - there is a lot more at stake than you first think.
I hadn't heard that about Jack Daniels
I guess some things will just have to be tolerated, now I have to start looking for a good guide dog.... maybe a pointer would be best!
